Resolved Question: Drogba a difference maker
Ivory Coast News
I was worried Ivory Coast wouldn't score after trailing 1-0 but suddenly when Drogba came in to the game off the bench, momentum shifted and Ivory Coast scored two goals in two minutes. Great goals by Gervinho and Bony.

Resolved Question: Are the French hypocrites
Aren't the French such hypocrites to have questioned the US's integrity of their invasion of Iraq when they put troops in the Ivory Coast to try to help rebels fight against the government! Go ahead and keep thinking the French are the peaceful humanists they proclaim to be. They'll do business with Saddam Hussein, yet not Laurent Gbagbo.It sounds a bit like Vietnam if you ask me. The French could have prevented the whole Vietnam war if they weren't so stubbornly protective of a territory they'd inevitably lose. They should have been greatful the Americans saved them from the Nazis! They knew we wouldn't attack them being an ally directly after WWII. So they turned to the Soviets which is what led to us trying to clean up mess they created.
What gave the French any more right to intervene in Ivorian affairs than Americans in Iraq? Do you think it really gets to the French that the Ivorians don't even take them seriously? Now if the US wanted to enforce policy on this country, they'd listen. They know we have the most powerful military in the world and utilize it often! There wouldn't even be an incentive for us though. Jorge - No, I was referring to what happened in the early-2000s following the end of the Ivorian civil war. I'm not against peace keeping troops being there (whether from France, the US, ect.). Gotta have more explosions! - They shouldn't than. The French don't have what the British have in collective territories either. With the exception of some like Sierra Leone, most of the countries on the crowd are stable and non-violent. Still though, if they feel such an urge of responsibility, than why doesn't the standard of living ever improve for these people? The Europeans are better off just staying away.
Gotta have more explosions! - Like I said, I'm not against peace keeping. I'm saying it makes them look hypocritical to pick a side and than point the finger at the US and say ''Hey, you shouldn't be intervening in their affairs.'' As if we're not involved in industries like those EU countries are in various African countries? As if we haven't been militarily involved in these places since the beginning of the Cold War? As if there aren't terrorists in those countries that don't want to harm us? At some point those European countries shouldn't have gotten involved there. Yet now they can't take their nose out. It doesn't matter if it were a long time ago. Iraq was only stable for who was in the favor of the Hussein regime. Why don't you tell the Kurds their lives were stably peaceful and see what they say. How are you going to tell me the intervention wasn't supposed by the UN, meanwhile most of the US's allies (arguably most countries in the world) send some sort of aid (even if temporarily)? The UN is a useless anti-Israeli organization. Gotta have more explosions - We asked Saddam Hussein to cooperate. He wouldn't. WMDs weren't the only reason we went into Iraq. What in '03 would have given us the impression Iraq ever would attack US soil? It was the potential terrorists he allowed to harbor in his country. Granted there weren't as many as in other countries. Yet there were some. Like it or not, we've taken out a tyrant and replaced it with a Democracy. It may or may not last. But our mission was noble. You think us not knowing whether or not there were WMDs wasn't enough to go to war? Than why'd the rest of the world initially support us? And many still do even with low popularity from their citizenry. You know why? Because they believed the ''You are with us or against us'' rhetoric. Europe and most of the world is America's b*tch and they know that. The French stepped out of line. I actually respect the canolies that took. But I despise their hypocrisy. That is because the Israelis have to deal with terrorists on their own turf. The freaking Palestinians elected a party Americans, the EU and Japanese classify as a terrorist organization. So I don't blame them to defend their own turf. It is true that the ISraeli's could be more cooperative though. The flotilla raids didn't really help their image. Nor is building into East Jerusalem. Like Americans though, as well as the Chinese (regarding Tibet and other territories), the Israels can and will do what they please. It is apart of the pleasure of having a powerful military. The Europeans tell all of us we are not entitled to this? Why? They did it for centuries. Now it is their turn to watch. While Americana were farming simple folk for centuries, the Brits were enslaving Africans, exploiting Indians and bossing around Boers. We're now here because of the British and represent their evolved values in a different story.
